The ride-in of the bikes started out from Bikers World in Browns Road, and then headed into town in time for the start of the festival at 10am. There were plenty of vintage, classic, retro, custom bikes and more through to modern machines. Children could have a ride on go-karts, a bouncy castle slide, face painting and more. The event was formally opened by the Mayor of Daventry Glenda Simmonds, and there was live music from The Originals and Mammoth. Authors Zoe Cano and Nathan Millward were also there signing copies of their latest books.
